Uniprot Description A rare autosomal dominant connective tissue disorder resulting in skeletal malformations and progressive extraskeletal ossification. Heterotopic ossification begins in childhood and can be induced by trauma or may occur without warning. Bone formation is episodic and progressive, leading to a debilitating ankylosis of all major joints of the axial and appendicular skeleton, rendering movement impossible.
